Ipsy Glam Bag April 2013

DSCN9169 My glam bag came a little later than usual this month which was a little sad since it’s my Birthday Month, BUT I’ll live! For only $10 a month, I receive my Ipsy (formally MyGlam) bag and I’ve yet to be disappointed! I know so many of my friends, family and readers enjoy this monthly bag and for that fashionista on a budget, I CANNOT recommend Ipsy enough! There is no way you could get these products (or comparable products as far as quality) for $10 a month plus a cute makeup bag to boot! This month’s theme was Pretty In Pint, how perfect for Spring!

DSCN9170This month, I received 4 products, 3 of which were full size! Insane! For a “sample subscription” company, I as floored to see so many big products. With a lot of other “boxes” I see a lot of skin or hair care when really, what most people are after is color cosmetics. Ipsy really listens to their customers and I’ve never received a box without at least TWO MAKEUP items.

DSCN9171The first product I pulled out was a full size blush from Be a Bombshell Cosmetics in the color “Sweet Cheeks”. A few months ago we received an eyeliner that I’m still loving to this day so I was thrilled to see this brand again. This formula is super smooth and pigmented.

DSCN9172There is an amazing metallic quality to the color! I can’t stop staring out it and I will be rocking this really soon! This blush sells for $16 which is more than I paid for ALL the products I received! (Thank you Be a Bombshell for Partnering with Ipsy!!)

DSCN9175Next, I got a full size Sation Nail Lacquer.

DSCN9176This is in the color Love at First Byte. Described as a peach toned nude, I am worried it might be sheer, but it’s 3-free and retails for $5, so secretly, I’m hoping I love it!

DSCN9177Next, we received another repeat brand, Mica Beauty Cosmetics. I seriously don’t mind these repeated brands because I really enjoyed the first products I tried from these brands.

DSCN9178This is an eyeshadow in the color “Earth” it’s got pink undertones but is certainly a wearable pink. I originally received a different eyeshadow (by a different color) but swapped for this one. These retail for $14.95

DSCN9179Lastly, I received a deluxe size sample from Big Sexy Hair of their POW Powder Play. This powder is meant to add texture and volume so I’m pumped to give this a go. It should be interesting. Ulta sells the full size of this for just under $16 making this a sample value of $2.11

Overall, my bag had a retail value of $38.06 and there was not a single thing I won’t be trying out and probably loving! If you aren’t already receiving an Ipsy bag in the mail monthly for only $10, I highly recommend you sign up! It’s a great way to discover new brands and products!

    I got my first Ipsy bag this month and looooved it. With well over $30 worth of high-quality products, who wouldn’t sign up for $10?! 🙂 I got the two cosmetics and the soy renewal, so I’m looking forward to seeing reviews from the mica shadow and powder.
